From a press release:

NHL fans will get an up-close, all-access look at some of their favorite stars with the upcoming “NHL Revealed: A Season Like No Other” series beginning in mid-January.

The series will begin Jan. 22 on NBCSN and Jan. 23 on CBC. It will be re-broadcast in Canada on Sportsnet on Jan. 26. The joint announcement was made Monday by the NHL, the National Hockey League Players’ Association, NBCSN and CBC.

NHL Revealed is a seven-part series telling the stories of more than two dozen of the League’s top stars as they prepare for and participate in 2013-14 regular-season games, including the four 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series games and the Tim Hortons NHL Heritage Classic. Additionally, the cameras will follow the stars during the February trip to compete in the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics.

Players expected to be featured in “NHL Revealed” include Sidney Crosby of the Pittsburgh Penguins; Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane of the Chicago Blackhawks; brothers Daniel and Henrik Sedin of the Vancouver Canucks; John Tavares of the New York Islanders; and goaltenders Henrik Lundqvist of the New York Rangers and Jonathan Quick of the Los Angeles Kings.

Plenty of compelling storylines there. The Kane-Toews feature should be interesting, especially leading up to the Olympics where their respective countries, the United States and Canada, are among the favorites to take gold.

The series will air on NBCSN on Jan. 22, Jan. 29, Feb. 5, and Feb. 27.

    I wonder if Joe Thornton will get a segment. He deserves one.

      I think he blew his chance when he said that if he got his own segment he’d take out his…well, you know.

        collared shirt and tie? oh that Joe Thornton. class act family man.

      ya. Joe Thornton in all of his infinite wisdom, and great leadership in playoff series.

    like no other though? in what way?

  3. sjsharks66 - Nov 18, 2013 at 2:47 PM

    Check his playoff stats. He has no problem being a “leader” in the playoffs. It’s not just one person in the playoffs and it seems like everyone puts the blame on Thornton. Look at last year against the Kings, game 7. Pavelski missed a complete open net that could have tied the game with only a couple minutes left. Everyone has to produce when it matters and Thornton has never had a problem with doing that.

    Look at JT last year in the playoffs. He was almost invisible until the conference finals. Yet he got all the praise for being a great leader through the entire playoffs.

    I know Thornton has yet to win a cup but his career is full of accomplishments. I just feel like he should get more recognition than what he is labeled as, a “choker”.

      of course it’s a Hawks fan lol. who, if it were 5 years ago, instead of bashing Thornton, would have been j’ing off to a poster of Tony Amonte.

        @ibie that was hilarious thank you for the laugh. honestly. and i was just messing around. yes he has never led them to a cup, or terribly deep in the playoffs, but he’s a great captain and a great player with a ton of accomplishments. i was just having a little fun.

      No one that is knowledgable about hockey still believes the Sharks/JT is a choker, it’s just dumb. Just let it go people, it takes a whole team to win a cup and a s**t load of luck

    A Joe Thornton episode would easily be the most entertaining, would beat any episode with Sidney Crosby and Jonathan Toews (captain serious) in it, they are some of the most boring people in sports.

    notice how toews and kane are neatly dove-tailed with the sedins…?

    the term apropos comes to mind…

    tavares should be seeking legal counsel, being lumped-in with that bunch, wot

    What? No Ovi…. C’mon NHL. :-)

    NBC is doing great things for the sport and NHL!! Like i said, we need to give the channel some viewership to help the ratings. High Ratings equals increased revenue(eventually) and less lockouts!

    • ibieiniid - Nov 19, 2013 at 8:11 AM

      I think that’s wishful thinking. Revenues were at all time highs for the last lockout, didn’t stop them. where there’s money to be had, they’ll fight about it. where there’s more money to be had, they’ll fight more about it.
